Well--it was the first show I ever dosed at and only my fourth show--so yeah, it was pretty crazy--at least from my point of view. I was so lucky to be there that night--I was home from college in CO, and got lucky in the lottery. I "got it" on 6/9/77, so I knew what was going on and how special it was--but I was still VERY green. I really ramped up my passion for the boys and being at shows after this night. It's one of the reasons I came back to the Bay. So many shows so close to home.

Well that would have made the Blues Brothers a strange sight in that state of mind. Any comments on Belushi and Akryond?

It was fun enough--great band--but I always felt it was a bit of a novelty act. I dunno--I was a huge SNL fan, and it started out as kind of a bit, you know? Thay were cool, but I may have been trippin pretty hard for that set. I think it was Mr. Natural blotter, quite strong--I remember my state of mind was perfect for the midnight countdown and 3 sets of GD.
